Although, no one can claim definitely what the object is a fellow UFO enthusiast and photo analyst believes the follows:
"I believe he and his friend have shot the best photo of "The Manta Stealth Aircraft" ever captured. I have attached an enhancement/enlargement of the craft. It is absolutely beautiful with a long central spine and interesting control features along the wing, extending from the fuselage (spine) at right angles," Robert Morningstar.

I added some contrast and edge enhancement here:
sorry about the quality but had to compress due to upload limits
could be a flying insect of some sort, blurred due to the speed, but the wing shape and body does not look like any insect ive ever seen
also from the contrast enhancement i cannot see a tail of any kind so i dont think it's a kite of any kind.
for some reason the whole photo has a sort of geniuine feel about it, from what i can tell it dosnt look photoshopped in any way.

Update September 4, 2006: Received an email from Doug who offers the following: Using Occam's razor, I'd guess it was one of these:
Dated: July 30, 2001. Northrop Grumman Corporation's Integrated Systems Sector (ISS), has completed production of the X-47A Pegasus, unmanned air vehicle that will be used to demonstrate aerodynamic qualities suitable for autonomous operation from an aircraft carrier.
Doug suggests that instead of a secret project we may have a photo of the X-47A Pegasus. As always, I leave it up to the reader to decide.
